We will explore yoga through mind/body awareness, physical asanas/poses and guided meditation. Yoga is an excellent way to improve muscular strength, endurance, flexibility and concentration. Yoga helps release stress and tension through asanas and pranayama (breath control and meditation) as well as increasing flexibility and balance. It’s a perfect workout to start the morning. No previous yoga experience is needed.
Prerequisite: Must be able to get up from and down to the floor.
